The Draft India Data Accessibility and Use Policy (Draft Policy), notified by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) on February 21, 2022, seeks to enhance inter-departmental data sharing while also facilitating monetisation through the sale of public data. At the core of this Draft Policy is a conception that data is a “valuable economic and social resource” which needs to be harnessed to facilitate better product and service delivery as well as governance to citizens. The last date for submission of comments was March 18, 2023.
